Its the more overstable version.

Think FX versus FL. Or teebird vs. TL.

REALLY overstable. However the ones I've seen are super domey.

Here's what the resident expert had to say about the Whippet-X.

Basically the wing is different. The old Whippets had a notch on the edge of the wing connecting the bevel to the edge of the disc. On the Whippet X the bevel connects directly to the edge of the disc with no notch. Removing the notch in theory would make a disc LESS stable, but they gave the Whippet X a big blunt nose which I guess offsets that effect and then some.

Anyway, that's it. If you see a Whippet with a flat part on the edge of the wing before it connects to the beveled part of the wing, it's the old Whippet mold.
I have one of these, but I haven't thrown it. It's just too pretty.

These have been in the Innova Factory Store FOREVER. Not exactly a hot seller. They have an uncomfortable amount of dome.

If you want a whippet and don't want to pay for CE, CFR glow whippet x are out there for less than 20. As durable a disc you'll find, and fly plenty OS.

All current runs are WX as far as I have heard/read. I have DX, star (pro shop), and a CFR glow champ. All three fly about the same. DX breaks in pretty fast and loses some overstability. Star is grippy with more flex. Champ is stiff and a touch more overstable.

Great discs to get out of trouble. It WILL be overstable, no denying that.
